  • Rocky V

    Took them 5 films to cosmetically change the formula.

  • Flatliners

    Joel Schumacher does the atheist’s take on near death experiences. It’s all about what we do in life.

  • The Hunt for Red October

    A Tom Clancy novel directed by John McTiernan. I’m surprised more shit doesn’t blow up. It’s as batshit insane as The Sum of All Fears, but this is a better film.

  • The Handmaid's Tale

    A focused version of the TV show. It’s only the greatest hits, but they are almost all there. The TV show takes its time between plot developments, it’s less jarring and has less mood swings.

  • Dick Tracy

    Calling Dick Tracy, calling Dick Tracy. I’m a beat cop and I can’t tie my shoes, help me Dick Tracy. What do I do, Dick Tracy? Help me, Dick Tracy.

  • Blue Steel

    A slasher with just a few characters. Clearly fiction when Internal Affairs do suspend cops for excessive use of force. Not pure copaganda, though.

  • Miller's Crossing

    Takes the cake for one of the most convoluted plots in a film noir. Makes Memento seem like The Straight Story. I posit it’s literally impossible to follow on the first view.

  • Total Recall

    Come on man, I got four kids to feed!
